“While recording Fanny Hill at Apple Studios in 1971 with Richard Perry, I was immediately struck by the band’s stellar musicianship. You must understand – there were no other female rock bands at that time. They truly paved the way for many artists to follow. Fanny were brilliant musicians who were true to their craft, and absolutely ahead of their time.”
— Geoff Emerick, Audio Engineer

“If there were no Fanny, there would be no Runaways, no Go Go’s, no Bangles … just to mention a few. They kicked the door down for you guys to walk through!”
— Earl Slick, Guitarist

“It was David Bowie who first hipped me to the all-female band Fanny in 1995, long after the fact. I don’t know how an excellent and influential band such as this could have escaped my radar for so long, but I immediately did my homework and got myself up to speed! I have been a fan, an admirer, and a student ever since … Not only are Fanny ground-breaking pioneers for female musicians in popular music, but their story is a unique and compelling one. Now, with the release of LOATB, all can experience their fascinating journey first hand. Fanny’s place in music history is impactful and undeniable.”
— Gail Ann Dorsey, Musician

“I discovered Fanny as a 12 year old kid, via a free Flexi disc in a UK Rock mag & I’ve been a fan ever since. Still the best female rock band ever!”
— Joe Elliott , Musician (Def Leppard)

“His respect for your pioneering spirit, and his desire to be empowering to you in your quest–were both totally evident to me. I knew that was truly deserved … and rare, in that beastly, brutal, manly, musical monopoly you remember so well!”
— Van Dyke Parks, Composer (speaking of Lowell George, Musician (Little Feat))

“I was the only girl ‘rock’ guitar player in my grade school. … Imagine how I felt when I first saw the cover of a Fanny record. Finally, I could pretend I was someone of my own gender. Rock on June Fuckin’ Millington!!”
— Jill Sobule, Singer-Songwriter

“This book would be worthy enough if it was just about our rock and roll foremothers and Feminist sheroes, Fanny; but the book is so vast in its geography, culture and history that it also serves as an important archive of Rock and Roll time and place. In Land of a Thousand Bridges, the reader is ushered from the U.S. occupied, post WWII Philippines of June’s birth in the late 1940”s thru life in Sacramento, to the formative 1960’s San Francisco music scene, landing in the midst of the iconic environs of 1960 and 70’s Hollywood, touring and recording in the USA, UK, and beyond; and all the while paying tribute to her musical influences and touchstones. This book is a great read and a “magic carpet ride” through some of Rock and Roll’s most important history.”
— Amy Ray, Singer-Songwriter (Indigo Girls)

“When I started playing guitar as a teenager I thought I was the only girl in the whole world who wanted to be in a band. I didn’t know about Fanny and I should have!! I can’t help but wonder how many gals got domesticated instead of becoming wild rockers because the lead taken by women like June didn’t filter down into into their orbits. It’s about time for June’s accomplishments to be recognized not only as a trail blazing great musician, but as a champion of feminism—expressed through an electric guitar plugged into 50 watts!”
Kathy Valentine, Musician (The Go-Go’s)

“What a great inside view of these amazing and historic times through the lens of someone who’s really been there. For anyone interested in the history of what it was like for strong, talented rockin’ women in a business dominated by men, and an entertaining telling of a remarkable life, this is a wonderful book.”
— Bonnie Raitt, Singer-Songwriter
